Dead Inside
Muse Lyrics


Dead inside!
Revere a million prayers
And draw me into your holiness
But there's nothing there
Light only shines from those who share
Unleash a million drones
Confine me then erase me babe
Do you have no soul?
It's like it died long ago
Your lips feel warm to the touch
You can bring me back to life
On the outside you're ablaze and alive
But you're dead inside!

You're free to touch the sky
Whilst I am crushed and pulverized
Because you need control
Now I'm the one who's letting go
You like to give an inch
Whilst I am giving infinity
But now I've got nothing left
You have no cares and I'm bereft

Your skin feels warm to caress
I see magic in your eyes
On the outside you're ablaze and alive
But you're dead inside!

Feel me now, hold me please
I need you to see who I am
Open up to me, stop hiding from me
It's hurting babe
Only you can stop the pain
Don't leave me out in the cold
Don't leave me out to die
I gave you everything
I can't give you anymore
Now I've become just like you

My lips feel warm to the touch
My words seem so alive
My skin is warm to caress
I'll control and hypnotize
You've taught me to lie without a trace
And to kill with no remorse
On the outside I'm the greatest guy
Now I'm dead inside!

As a fellow and dedicated MUSE fan, I'll give you my interpretation - and the fact is: I could keep writing on and on about the meaning behind this song alone. It's like trying to write a dissertation for a philosophy or theoretical physics doctorate.

First of all:

image: Man starts out strong, woman starts out weak. Later, roles are reversed.
interpretation: In life, all is not as it seems. Those who start out strong can end up weak and vice versa.

lyric: "You like to give an inch, whilst I am giving infinity"
interpretation: Life at its core works on dynamic situations: conversations require equal input, romance requires equal input, etc. Partners typically suck the life out of each other, one not giving enough, the other giving it all. He's teaching us that appearances can fool, especially in today's modern society. While someone may appear super strong and successful, they're likely dead inside.

lyric: "It's like I died long ago", "but you're dead inside!"
interpretation: People nowadays live their lives silently in existential crisis.

lyric: "Light only shines from those who share".
interpretation: This illustrates the idea that if you don't expose yourself out there, you miss out on all the good things interactions with people can bring, but you also have to be wary of exposing yourself. Dynamic social homeostasis, they call it in psychology.

lyric: "Your feet touch the sky whilst I am crushed and pulverized"
interpretation: Touches on the ego problem lots of people have nowadays. They will crush anyone just to be with their feet in the sky.

MUSE not only provides relatable lyrics, but it goes as far as communicating to us society's core problems. It's like a free course in Sociology, Philosophy etc.
Aside from loving MUSE's music and style, this is also why I love them, they're very wise and they know what the deeper souls among us go through, it's like Matt intimately reaches into our minds, which is the reason why I'm intimately connected to MUSE.

For me it's the following order:

1 - Absolution
2 - Black Holes and Revelations
3 - Origin of Symmetry
4 - Drones
5 - Showbiz
6 - The Second Law
7 - The Resistance

My favorite song from each would have to be:

1 - The Small Print
2 - Map of the Problematique
3 - Hyper Music or Bliss (Can't make my mind up)
4 - Defector
5 - Sunburn
6 - Panic Station
7 - Unnatural Selection
